  • Fantastic activities. Superb variety! Rice pit was a particular favourite! Good changing facilities and a good range of snacks available.  more »
  • We have so much fun here, the rice pit is great fun and the scarf tubes are the best and that’s not all there’s an upstairs to get creative. Best way to spend a few hours. X  more »
  • Brilliant and different alternative to soft play. Wish we lived in Hastings to be able to use this more often! Our 2 sons loved discovering everything and we could have happily spent hours more there - we were already there for 2.5 hours! All the different equipment is well thought out - our sons loved the rice pit , the giant ball run and the musical tubes in particular but we still had lots to explore when we had to leave. Definitely give this a place a go if you have toddlers!
  • This place is fabulous.Absolutely brilliant. All of our grandchildren (aged 2 to 6 ) loved it. Great value. Ideal for a long visit. Parents enjoyed it too. Staff are brilliant. Plenty to encourage children to think.every child was happy and engaged.
